Choose a word. A phrase. A quote. A photograph. Select something that holds meaning for you. Post it in a city to all who pass by. Give it to a curious stranger to keep.
This is an active, durational, installation event. Anyone and everyone may submit an idea to the project at taken-city.tumblr.com. These submissions will be attached to Post-It Notes, and will be put up somewhere in London. A photo of the piece (with the location noted) will be posted on the blog page. And the words, “Take Me!” will be at the top of every piece, inviting a stranger to take a slip of inspiration away with them.
Visit the project here for more details and to submit your own piece.

A person sits onstage, holding a radio. They believe they are being studied by aliens. As sounds and music break through the static, they try to talk back. They dance, speak, listen, and recall. The radio emissions take them through several scenarios, part memory and part detailed reliving.
Eventually, they realize that by starting the conversation, by finding and creating beauty in the static, they can send a message back to whatever and whoever is out there.
“White Hole Noise” is a one-man, 10 minute show written and performed by Griffyn Gilligan. It debuted at the BAC Homegrown Scratch Night at the Battersea Arts Center on Friday, December 5, 8:30 PM.
